Job role: Recruitment Consultant
Specialism: Surveying & Project Management - Yorkshire & the North West of England
Having made the jump into recruitment after 7 years in the retail sector, I knew from the off-set that this is the role for me. Although I have no experience in the recruitment world, my passion for success and making a name for myself shall assist me greatly in my new role.
Making the decision was made easier as the entire Conrad team made me feel so welcome with the friendly atmosphere they showed from the start.
Prior to Conrad, I enjoyed my time in retail as I acquired a certain skill set, met some incredible people and gained invaluable experience up and down the country which will prove useful in years to come. Skills like determination, communication and organisation are just a few to name and I feel will be of great use to me in terms of excelling as a person and as an consultant. These skills have allowed me to make a massive contribution wherever I have gone in Leeds which is fantastic as this is my hometown and my number 1 love. Creating relationships and evolving them within the city is what I do best and know the sky is the limit meaning I will not stop.
When I’m not building my network of contacts, I am a keen writer and have previously wrote for the sports section in the Yorkshire Evening Post along with Leeds United Ladies and Garforth Town football club. Writing about sports came very easily as I play sports a lot myself when I’m not attending music gigs or socialising with friends/family.
